Exclusive: Keanu Reeves Faces Off Against Tiger Chen In 'Man Of Tai Chi'

One of the best and most overlooked action movies of this past year was Keanu Reeves directorial debut “Man of Tai Chi.” The tale of a Faustian bargain between a good-hearted martial artist (played by Reeves’ friend and stuntman Tiger Chen) and the evil operator of an underground fight club (Reeves, obviously), it packed in more visceral thrills and over-the-top action than movies ten-times its size. Thankfully, those who missed it will be able to catch up with the film, and we’ve got an exclusive clip.

The brief clip is part of the film’s very last fight sequence (don’t worry, it doesn’t spoil anything). After our hero has turned his back on the vicious underground fighting world in which Reeves has entangled him, he goes to his local temple. That’s where Reeves finds him and gets to utter the film’s insta-catchphrase: “You owe me a life.” Fists are thrown. And it is good.

“Man Of Tai Chi” is now available on DVD and Blu-ray, courtesy of the Weinstein Company.
